    Exactly. The whole marriage-traditionalism movement is a paradox in itself.

    Depends on what you consider a marriage. I'm all for giving anyone freedom to marry, but obviously you can't expect a gay couple to be given the same fiscal benefits that couples with children get. The same that couples with no children receive though, seems fair.

    Who cares, if they are going to take the time to complain about it, than why would they even post anything in the first place.

    There hasn't been a same sex-marriage thread in a while, as far as I can remember. So don't worry.
    Is it that by its indefiniteness it shadows forth the heartless voids and immensities of the universe, and thus stabs us from behind with the thought of annihilation, when beholding the white depths of the milky way?

    This confuses me. What are these fiscal benefits of having children? Do you mean the tax deductions? Because I can't think of anything else. And if so, I don't think anyone has proposed giving child tax credits to gay couples without children. Gay couples WITH children, yes. It's only fair.

    Some beasts are best left alone.
    If christianity is against it, let them have their opinion as long as it isn't manifested with violence or such.

    If gay people want to get married in a church before God, make up a new religion or something. It's not hard. I hear Jedi-religion has like 500 000 followers. A new gay version of christianity would be a huge thing, for realz. (P.S. I'd tooootally join if I got to wear a skirt, makeup and a flower hat at Sunday mass)

    I agree, but there are already plenty of religions that would be happy to marry gay couples, even some Christian denominations. The Episcopalian church just a couple of weeks ago had a convention at which they decided to pursue creating a liturgy for the blessing of same sex unions, which I'm guessing will become a marriage liturgy if the law changes to allow gay marriage. There have already been some gay couples married (religiously only, since it's not yet legally recognized) at my church.
